Got an early 7am start on this trail to avoid the crowds, it worked beautifully. A fantastic day and beautiful views. Make sure to carry a little cash for stopping at the tea houses.

Starting from the Chateau Lake Louise, the Lake Agnes Trail starts you on an intense and quick elevation gain. This part of the trail is very wide and in some portions the path is paved, also, you will have to contend with passing horses and their manure. When you get to Lake Agnes you can stop for Tea while admiring the lake. You continue by walking around Lake Agnes, at this point you will be exposed to the elements as there are no trees in this area. Now will come the climb to the top of Big Bee Hive, here the path zigzags in order to gain the most altitude within the smallest surface area. Reaching the top, you get the relax and admire the most stunning views of Lake Louise and the Chateau. Spend some time at the top as it is flat and each area offers different vistas. Now you start the decent, this steady drop in elevation will take place within a thick forest, not too difficult but pay attention where you plant your foot. Eventually you reach the Highline Trail where you should take a right (taking a left will take you back to the tea house). Continue on the Highline Trail until you reach a sign saying Lake Louise 5KM. Take this beautiful hillside trail(open trail, no trees but lots of flowers) all the way to the Plain of Six Glaciers trail. From you the path takes you down to the Lake Louise where you walk on a mostly flat and wide trail. It took us five and half leisurely hours to complete this trail. Great loop that offers a bit of everything.
